Poppy’s Beauty Routine

After my morning shower my skin is always dry, so I cleanse with my Malin + Goetz Facial Cleansing Oil (£30) and then reseal my pores with the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Moisturiser (£39). Particularly during the winter, I find my skin appears increasingly dehydrated and dull, and previously I had always worn BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in Ginger 06 (£28). However, the cream did not sit well on top of my moisturiser, and I found it became congealed around areas of breakouts.

For the last two weeks, I have used the Bobbi Brown SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm (£40) which provides a really natural glow and medium coverage. After applying this with my clean fingertips, I simply buff my Soleil Tan de Chanel (£36) onto my cheek bones, nose and forehead with Petit Pinceau Kabuki brush (£40), and have been thrilled with the sheer and velvet finish it gives my skin.


Glossier’s Boy Brow (£14) in Blonde shapes my brows and adds a natural looking tint, and a smudge of Glossier’s Cloud Paint (£15) in Beam injects a subtle colour to my cheeks, and glides on top of my tinted moisturiser beautifully.

Finally, I apply my new Mac Lip Scrubtious (£12.50) in Summer Berry to smooth and hydrate my lips, while tinting them with a natural cherry hue, and curl my lashes with my Shu Uemura Eye lash Curler (£15). A lick of my Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara (£25) and a smear of my Kevyn Aucoin Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss (£31) on my lids, and I’ve achieved my natural, dewy look!


Chloe’s Beauty Routine

I’ll always prep my skin before putting on makeup. I use the Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Light Day Cream (£26) and once it has gone less tacky, I prime my face with my Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (£30). Whilst I wait for the primer to dry, I go and wet my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99) which I use to put on my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation (£35). Depending on if I have tanned or not I will mix this with a lighter or darker foundation to match my skin, or just use the foundation alone.

I then use Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (£24) to highlight under my eyes, on my nose and on my forehead. I will blend that in with the beauty blender and then use my Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (£21) to cover any blemishes I may have. Then, using a big fluffy brush, I apply Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder (£29) all over my face. After this, with my Nars Bronzing Powder (£29), I’ll contour my face a bit. I then put a tiny bit of blusher on my cheeks; I am using the Too Faced Sweetheart Blush (£24) at the moment. Then I apply my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter (£32) on the tip of my nose and along the top of my cheekbones.

Once my face is done, I use the Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit (£26.50) to fill in my eyebrows and the Benefit 3D Browtones Eyebrow Enhancer (£20) to give them a bit more volume and set them. After curling my lashes I’ll put on mascara; I really like the L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara (£10.99).

After doing all this, I’ll set my face with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray (£24) then I’m ready to go!
